Wood Fairies297 viewsTaken 11/12/06
Have you ever heard stories about the Wood Fairies? It has to do with Fairies escaping from the wood burned in campfires. I’m not sure where the story originated but apparently its true. Can you see them in the photo leaving the fire?

Pu' u O' o173 viewsTaken 4/3/06
Kilauea is the world’s most active volcano. Once thought to be part of the Mauna Loa Volcano, it is now known to be a separate unique volcano. All the current activity on Kilauea is at the Pu’u O’o Vent. Lava flows from Pu’u O’o Vent into the ocean. This photo was taken at approximately 6:53 p.m. from a distance of about 2 miles. The red glow of molten lava can be seen as it flows into the ocean creating tall plumes of steam.

Swallowtail153 viewsI chased this butterfly around my backyard for 20 minutes. I don't remember how many shots I took. Finally got some good ones. Here he is posing on one of the Agapantus flowers. I like the grenn, purple and yellow. Taken with a Canon Digital Rebel with a 300mm Zoom Lens.

Cumulonimbus411 viewsI was flying back from Boston and got a chance to see some spectacular weather from the air. We were heading West over Arizona and the hot afternoon Sun was creating some beautiful Cumulonimbus clouds. We were flying at approximately 32,000 Feet and the Thermal Convection was driving these clouds well above us. Taken July 23, 2007.

In Alignment152 viewsTaken 5/14/04
A beautiful warm evening here in the Los Angeles area. 95 degrees at my station in Altadena today. I spent the evening in the back yard to watch a visible pass of the International Space Station (ISS) and took some photos of the evening sky. The brightest object is Venus, the "Evening Star". Moving 45 degrees from Venus to the upper left you see Mars and then Saturn. A beautiful alignment of three of the visible planets.

H2214 viewsThe Humming Birds love the Mexican Sage (Salvia Leucantha) in my yard. They are very territorial and will stake claim to a favorite bush and confront other Humming Birds who try to feed on it.
